Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom Condo On Lake Front

This spectacular 1100 sq. foot renovated two story condo is located on beautiful Lake Okanagan with absolutely breathtaking views of the water. You are literally a stone toss away from the water's edge.

We are situated 15 minutes from downtown Vernon BC, and 40 minutes to the Kelowna airport.

The condo is located directly on the Lake shore with direct access to a shared beach and dock. If you choose to bring a boat please note that the public boat launch is located within 1/2 Km from the condo along Tronson Road. There is a boat buoy for your convenience to moor your boat which is located directly in from of the condo unit. The buoy was installed in the summer of 2014 and is DOT compliant with a rating of 9000 LBS. It has a 2000 LB main line and 1000 LB tag line. The chain is hardened steel with grade 70 strength.

Unfortunately due to the May 2017 Storm that hit the Okanagan region the dock, like many others along the lake shore was destroyed. We are scheduled to have a new dock installed for the summer of 2017 however, due to the demand for new docks from this storm, we are unsure as of yet if this will be completed on time. We are sorry and apologize for this inconvenience.

Due to limited space we cannot provide boat trailer storage, however we recommend "Elephant Storage Center" which is located at 6136 Okanagan Avenue in Vernon (250-549-2255) and is very reasonably priced.

The Condo is fully furnished and decorated with a relaxing beach and nautical theme to take you away from the hustle and bustle of everyday work to paradise. It can comfortably sleep 5 people. It has 2 queen beds in the main bedroom and a pull out bed in the upper storey front room that has a breath taking view of the lake.

There is one full bathroom located on the upper floor, as well as washer and dryer located in the upper floor bedroom. Towels and linens are provided for your convenience. We ask that you not use the white towels to take to the beach but rather the blue towels or beach towels located in the laundry room closet. The kitchen comes fully stocked with all basic cooking utensils and dinner and drink ware as well as a Keurig coffee maker, microwave, stove and full sized refrigerator. There is a propane BBQ and patio furniture located on the deck for your enjoyment. A/C units are located on the upper floor in the front room and in the hallway leading to the bedroom. Fans are also located if necessary in the laundry room closet.

For your media entertainment the condo comes equipped with 2 flat screen TV's, DVD players, WiFi and board games.

There is only one parking stall assigned to this condo unit and the visitor parking fills up very quickly during the summer months. Therefore if you plan on bringing more than one vehicle, you will have to make alternate arrangements for storage.

Absolutely "No" pets are allowed due to allergies and hygiene reasons.

There is absolutely "NO SMOKING" permitted anywhere within the condo or on the Strata Property due to Bylaws and this is strictly enforced.

For family's with little one's. A playpen is available for sleeping accommodations or play. Please let us know when booking is this is required.

Please note that for persons with impaired mobility, this condo is located on the side of a hill and therefore there are a number of stairs to manage both on the grounds and within the condo unit as well. Therefore it may not be the most ideal location for you.

We take a lot of pride in providing a beautiful clean and relaxing place for others to enjoy like we have for several years. We hope that you will feel like you have stepped into a piece of paradise with the tranquil and breath taking surroundings.

Mike Burge & Angela Zavisha purchased this condo in 2011

Why Mike Burge & Angela Zavisha chose Vernon

Our family bought here because as a child Michael spent many weeks here during the summer. Michael's father was one of the original owners at Adventure Bay some 43 years ago and is still here today. The original Adventure Bay development was built as a resort and played host to many famous people of the time including Rosemary Clooney and some of the "Rat Pack". At one time it boasted white sand beaches a full restaurant and bar and a sauna room . It was truly cutting edge for it's time when it was built in 1962. In the 1970's it was converted from a resort to a condo development.

We love the nostalgia that Adventure Bay holds and it is a place we enjoy coming to in order to recharge our batteries with our three young children. The kids love it and just play all day on the dock or climbing the grounds and of course hours of swimming in the beautiful Okanagan lake waters. By the end of the day we are all exhausted. It is amazingly quiet as there are no roads passing through. In the summer it is a great atmosphere filled with hot days, water, and great visits with family, friends and meeting new people.

What makes this condo unique

Located right on the water's edge surrounding with breathtaking beauty and wildlife such as eagles, herons, owls, deer, many local birds and of course fish. Come sit on our deck with a fresh brewed cup of coffee or a glass of locally made wine and escape into paradise. If you have a water craft you can venture over to the floating restaurant and enjoy some authentic Thai cuisine, beverages, ice cream treats or whatever is being created in the kitchen for the day.

Vernon is not the crazy rat race of Kelowna or Vancouver yet boasts some wonderful restaurants and amenities such as the Atlantis water slides, Davidson's Orchards and O'keefe Ranch. There are many public beaches (Kinsmen Beach, or Kalamalka Lake Beach) that are accessible from a parking lot or if you choose a bit more adventure then a short hike such as Juniper Bay or Ellison Provincial Park. There is a fantastic farmers market every Monday and Thursday located at the Recreation Centre as well as one on mainstreet on Friday afternoons. For world class golf check out Predator Ridge just across the lake or for a day of luxury check out the world renowned "Sparkling Hill Resort and Spa" whose beautiful lights can be seen at night from our deck glowing on top of the hill across the lake. For more adventure, Sliver Star Mountain offers world class downhill mountain biking in the summer and skiing in the winter months.

However is you choose to do a day trip and some local exploring you will find that there are a multitude or wineries or orchards to visit all within a 1-2 hour drive. You can also check out some Lavender farms in the Kelowna area. If you choose to venture into Kelowna or Penticton for a day trip you will find a plethora of culinary delights with locally sourced foods and famous chefs. There is also fantastic public beaches in both of these communities and of course the famous canal between Skaha and Okanagan lake located in Penticton (don't forget to bring your floaty).

Notes:
This is a very quiet area with no through roads. Adventure Bay is quiet family oriented place and is not suitable for those who are looking to have a "Party Weekend". There are noise bylaws from 11 pm - 7 am and it is a place that a lot of family's come to enjoy for their summer holidays. If you are looking for a party weekend then there are several other places in the Okanagan and Vernon area that are more suitable for this.

This is our second visit to the condo, needless to say we love it!

  • 5 of 5

Mike and Angela's condo is in a great location right on the lake, convenient to downtown Vernon, and very easy to get to the local sights. The beauty is in the location, quiet area right on the lake where the deer wonder by, we could spend hours sitting on the deck. Angela has decorated the condo beautifully, it's totally upgraded with every amenity you could need. There is great space for families with two living areas and plenty of beds.

Comfort on the lake.

  • 4 of 5

Our family of four (two adult daughters) thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this townhouse! The complex was out of town which we liked but still close enough to everything in Vernon; just a short drive to Davidson Orchards. The house was spacious and the sleeping layout provided comfort and privacy for everyone. Recommend deck shoes as the beach was rocky but access to the water was just walking out on the deck and down the steps. Bring your canoe, kayaks, surf boards and you will have a wonderfully relaxing holiday with views from upstairs and down of the lake. Loved our stay and would stay here again!

Beautiful lakefront location a quick drive into Vernon.

  • 5 of 5

Mike and Angela are both warm and welcoming. The condo has been updated beautifully and had everything we could need. There were five adults in our party and we had plenty of room with two bedrooms and two sitting rooms and a large balcony overlooking the lake. Such a beautiful spot I am positive we will be back!

Well kept and a nice hidden oasis from the summer crowds.

  • 4 of 5

We fully enjoyed our stay and Mike was easily accessible for anything we needed during our stay. The place was fully equipped with the essentials. The only thing is, I do wish there was another mirror in the condo besides the bathroom for us 4 girls. Overall, wonderful and thank you very much.
